managed to recover from that. here's romney and obama today. >> i think it's a -- a -- a terrible course for america, to stand in apology for our values. >> there's a broader lesson to be learned here, and you know, governor romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. and as president, one of the things i've learned is that you can't do that. it's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts and that you've thought through the ramifications before you make them. >> we will get into all of that tonight. i promise you will we will do the campaign in detail. but before we do, in an election year, presidential politics has a tendency to overshadow everything else. there's a tendency to only care about real genuinely important events in terms of their effect on the campaign. but what happened over the last 24 hours in libya and cairo needs to be understood on its own terms first, because the ramifications could be with us for quite a while, no matter who is president. and so we should start the show tonight on a note of humility
display of weakness. we are now seeing the fruits of this reckless rhetoric. this disaster, the obama administration can't get on the same page about whether or not we view egypt at this moment as an ally. watch this. >> you know, i don't think that we would consider them an ally. but we don't answer them an enemy. they are a new government that is trying to find its way. >> you are saying that the administration, state department, still regards egypt as a major non-nato ally and is a recipient of all that that entails? >> yes. >> sean: what is it? does the administration think that egypt is an ally or not? instead of answering, the white house talks in circles. when asked about the contradiction a spokesman said this, i think folks are reading way too much into this. ally is a legal term of art. and it all depends what "is" is. and we weren't having sex either. here with reaction, fox news contributor, our friend, charles krauthammer. welcome back. >> happy to be here. >> sean: i loved your line, we should have as the united states, told them to go straight to hell. we didn't. where
that the ban was rescinded. on thursday, february 26th, 2009, just five weeks after president barack obama was inaugurated, the defense department lifted the ban and one week after the ban was lifted, the following thursday, the media was allowed to cover that solemn return ceremony for the first time in a long time. and maybe it is because we did go so long as a country without seeing images like this that we are a little rocked back on our heels when we do see these images. today was the transfer ceremony at andrews air force base just outside washington, d.c., at which the bodies of the four americans killed in libya this week were brought home. it was the middle of the afternoon on an unusually busy news day with a million other things going on in american news and politics, but it was like time just stopped. >> we will wipe away our tears, stiffen our spines, and face the future undaunted. and we will do it together. protecting and helping one another just like sean, tyrone, glen, and chris always did. may god bless them and grant their families peace and solace, and may god continue
worth noting. one is missile defense. when the obama administration came into office, they did not cut funding for missile defense. they kept it at about the same level, about $10 billion a year. but they shifted resources to focus much more on other things. these are systems like patriots, it is good for helping protect our forces overseas were -- now, national missile defense systems are really concerned with protecting the united states in particular. the obama administration changed our plans for european missile defense to leverage the existing missile defense system and put that system sure first in romania and poland later on. they also curtailed the ground-based midcourse. they stopped it at 30. i think the wrong administration would actually probably go back and change the balance again, much more in favor of national missile defense systems and we have actually seen in congress, republicans have been pushing the idea of deploying some of these ground-based and interceptors on the united states disclosed. another area of specific differences in shipbuilding. it is an imperfect
>> mr. obama takes center stage at the u.n. >> i help that people are going to call me awful things every day and i will always defend their right to do so. how did the media treat his message? and how did the news media react to the words and warnings from other world leaders. cnn reveals details from an ambassador's private journal and ignites bitter reaction at a debate over what's fair game. new details surfaced about the deadly terror attack at the consulate at libya, debates what the white house knew and when they knew it and the press passes again. stumbles, fumbles and grumbles, as we placement refs get replaced by the real deal. how did the media force the play? and some of the conservative press gather a the a star-studded gala. >> i never did much understand why cnn thought it would beat fox news at 9 p.m. with a british host who looks like he just got a really bad wedgy at a british prep school. >> on the panel. judy miller, cal thomas, jim pinkerton, contributing editor american conservative magazine and daily beast columnist kirsten power. i'm rick fulbaum in f
, the obama campaign combines mitt romney's words with some potentially devastating pictures. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> as of today we're just 40 days away until the presidential election. and for the second day in a row both mitt romney and president obama have been campaigning in the same battleground state. this time it's virginia where both men targeted the same group of voters. let's walk over to cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta who's been out on the campaign trail watching what's going on. another dramatic day. virginia, virginia, virginia. pretty important place. >> that's right. a rare visit to washington for me. but it's good to be home, wolf. all politics is local. so it was no surprise to hear both candidates hit on national security themes today in their speeches in virginia. but the state is much bigger than that. it's really a republican firewall for mitt romney. in battleground virginia, both president obama and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery before a group of veterans, romney slammed the president for the massive defense
wish i could get wendy and her job back. barak obama and mitt romney will slug it out and talk about economy and jobs and what they'll do to make things better. i truly believe president obama wishes things were better. but after watching his plans fail for four years, i doubt he will make them better. i do think mitt romney understands if they don't have a job they can't buy a hamburger and if wendy's isn't selling enough hamburgers and the ever-rising food prices they will close people like my special friend wendy won't have a job. i don't expect barak obama or mitt romney to fix it all by themselves. and i know they can't personally keep every windy's open. and so my friend wendy will have a job. i would like bark obama and mitt romney to be able to look wendy in the eyes and convince her and me that they really understand who she is. and she matters as much as any banker or broker on wall street that got balled out of their trouble it is not just jobs, it is people. they don't care about the politics. they just want to feel good again. and investigators are not saying that the at
an effigy of president obama. the chaos forcing businesses and public transportation to shut down in the country's main city. in just north africa and the middle east, protests have already sprung up in some 23 different territories, and with reports of a devastating homicide bombing that killed at least 12 people in afghanistan this morning, thicks do not -- things do not appear to be calming down everywhere. we'll have continuing coverage of the ongoing violence, plus new warnings from al-qaeda that more diplomats could now be in danger. first, though, another fox news alert on the political fallout from a hidden camera video of governor mitt romney that has been leaked online. a liberal site posting snippets of mr. romney speaking to supporters earlier this year. we're told that we could see more of the video any moment now. they said they would be releasing it early this afternoon. and the material that has been released, governor romney talks about people who would most likely support president obama and not governor romney come november. listen here. >> there are 47% of the
that the sprinted is here. they have to step it up to catch barack obama but also to keep the republican base that he needs happy and shows he's got the necessary energy to go through with the campaign. >> gregg: has there been some criticism that the romney campaign hasn't been campaigning hard enough? >> yeah, when the president is campaigning couple times and there is close fund-raisers. there have been complaints that the fund-raisers didn't make him accessible enough to the public. so they opened up the fund-raising event opened to the cameras, but you have to remember, donors are already in the camp. this week is the big ramp up for it. part of what the are trying to do is set the tone for the debate season. this will be a great deal of emphasis for the economy and jobs. he will expand it to more broader choices. tight frameworks this is really a reelection of barack obama and three years of failure hasn't been able to bring about the change of promise. you'll hear homicidal talking about that and saying some 14 years ago he wanted to redistribute wealth. he will be saying the president
in florida today. the vice presidential hopeful attended a rally earlier arguing president obama missed his chance to get the economy back on track. >> when he came in, he came in with one party rule. president obama and his party controlled everything. the obama economic agenda did not fail because it was stopped, it failed because it was passed. >> today we also learned who congressman ryan's debate practice partner will be. there he is. ted olson. former solicitor general under president george w. bush. he will be playing the role of joe biden in mock debates. congressman ryan and vice president biden will face off just one time three weeks from now. meanwhile, the obama campaign is out with a new ad today. it's a response to governor romney who has been asking americans if they are better off now than they were four years ago. >> here's where we are today. 30 months of private sector job growth. creating 4.6 million new jobs. we're not there yet, but the real question is whose plan is better for you. the president's plan asks millionaires to pay a little more, to help invest in a strong
and a liberal "the washington post" columnist go head to head over hate toward president obama. charles will be zero if the republic party is missing anything it's sort of this war on women. >> war on women? sandra fluke? she is 30 for god's sake. just shut up for a second, okay? >> dennis miller man oman over the president. >> go factor, go factor. >> caution, you where to enter the no spin zone from massachusetts. the factor begins right now. ♪ ♪ >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly, reporting tonight from washington, more americans murdered by militant muslims. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. right off the bat offended the far left. they don't want the facts reported about the islam i islamic jihad the followers of allah who kill in the name of their religion. that's tough. my job is to till the truth. in libya, 52-year-old christopher stevens, the american ambassador to that country was murdered last night along with three other american citizens. fox news has obtained information that those killings were apparently planned. not a spontaneous demonstration.
-millionaires who vote for republicans are like cows voting for burger king. barack obama is a lot like occupy wall street or the bible. i do think we're seeing that this year turned up to 11. there's a lot of folks out there who are social conservatives who are fighting really really hard to make sure that mitt romney gets another tax cut. so i thank you for the call. fox news to me is like for futal lords and the surfs that love them. roy is here on the "bill press show." good morning. >> caller: good morning. i think we have to keep in mind with occupy it's more than a slogan it's a process. the entire world in many languages is now aware of this imbalance of wealth is what we're really talking about. jl uh-huh. >> caller: i think it's a mistake to start getting into the minutia of the party that believes they can make the word move backwards instead of forwards. and that's what they are finding out. they want to turn back the clock. they want to undo 2008. the most pathological and impossible way of doing it. that's what they think they can live. mitt romney is still mad
economy. you have to have a strong economy. >> president obama was rallying supporters in virginia beach. that was a couple minutes ago. he talked about creating opportunities for everybody. >> we don't believe anybody is entitled to sucssthis country. we don't believe government should help folks who aren't willing to try to help themselves. but we do believe in sothing called opportunity. we do believe in a country where hard work pays off, where responsibility is rewarded, where everyone gets a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody plays by the same rules. we believe in america where no matter what you look ke, no matter who you are, no matter where you come from, no matter who you love, u n make it if y. [ cheers and applause ] that's the country i believe in. >>> jim acosta is covering the romney campaign. jim, one of the interesting things back in 2008 in covering president obama, you knew that there was a sense that he could possibly win when people started showing up in virginia. i mean that was really th turning pot. they thought perhaps we have this th
progressed over the last few days, president obama and his administration struggling to even define our relationship with some of those countries, including egypt. president obama, who refused to take questions from the white house press corps did sit down with telemundo and tried to explain his view of the american relationship with egypt. he said i don't think we would consider them in our life that we don't consider them an enemy. a squall of criticism followed. the white house trying to explain what president obama meant to say. spokesman tommy bidder didn't help a white house effort. he said the word ally doesn't amount to much. and call the term ally a legal term of art. for the record, the oxford english dictionary defines the term as a person or organization that cooperates with or helps another in a particular activity. not much art. in that, a simple word. not necessarily a term. for the president's enjoyment, enemy means a hostile nation or its armed forces or citizens. meanwhile from the white house come obama campaign, much of the mainstream media, and even some republicans
foreign policy and protests in the middle east between governor romney and president obama. joining us is john dickerson of cbs. >> the long-standing tradition that in campaigns politics stops at the water's edge, senator van den berg's quote that may be a little bit outdated but romney jumped in so fast here that it was just kind of breaking with the normal tradition. but there is another point here which is i talked to a very senior military man last night who said first reports are always wrong. the reason you hold back for a minute is you just know the news is going to change. and in this case iting chad there were more deaths. and so romney's statement looked out of sync with the mourning and the shock that was going on when everybody woke up on wednesday morning. >> rose: we continue with a look at that and more with david brooks of "the new york times". and it underlines i think a problem with romney, which he is just not a philosophical guy. you know, the people who know him well like him. they say he's a good manager. he just doesn't have philosophical interests. >> rose: we c
shifting to president obama. we're about to find out which way the state of nevada is moving. and new developments in the hunt for the suspects in the attack that killed the united states ambassador to libya and three other americans. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> with only 47 days to go until the election, the romney campaign's about to roll out another new strategy. voters will be seeing a lot more of mitt romney. in fact, we're only minutes away from his speech at a rally in florida. our national political correspondent jim acosta is joining us now live from sarasota to set the scene. jim, what's going on? >> reporter: wolf, we expect mitt romney to be out here in sarasota, florida, in just a few minutes from now. this is where his advisors say after a relatively light schedule over the last couple weeks, mitt romney and his campaign will be picking up the pace. and after seeming to defend those comments on that hidden camera video on government dependency, romney appears to be shifting again on that message as well looking for something that will stick. aft
, but he is willing to listen and trying to do what he says mr. obama has not been able to -- lead. watch this. >> you may not agree with me on every issue. and the american people may not agree with me on every issue. but i don't think i have been called anything besides a strong leader. know how it lead. i will bring america together. i will not divide america. i will bring us together to accomplish great things for our great nation. >> to put the rough week of last and the week before that behind them, they are accelerating the battle on the ground, tonight he goes to colorado. and during the course of all of this, their idea is that it will come down to 6 to 10 states stad in most of the state, mr. romney is in a tie or trailing by a point or two, within the margin. every one of the states that will decide the election were won by barack obama four years ago, so romney knows he has to take them back and put them into the red column. >> it's been sometime since mitt romney has been in colorado, why so long? >> 7 weeks and it's a key battleground state. that's a long time for the princi
. president obama and prime minister netanyahu attended the united nations general assembly in new york, but at different times. the white house insisted it was a scheduling issue, not a snub. no meetings, no handshakes. but today a follow-up phone call that a senior administration official told cnn lasted more than 20 minutes. in a statement released by the white house, the conversation included "a range of security issues," the president reaffirmed his commitment to israel security. and the two leaders were in full agreement on preventing iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. prime minister netanyahu has been pressuring the u.s. to lay down a so-called red line on iran that would prompt military action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white
consequences for misleading americans about what happened in libya. wasting no time, obama administration officials and congressional democrats are coming to rice's defense, saying she went on the sunday talk shows and gave the "best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time." national security council spokesman tommy vitt just-released statement saying rice has done extraordinary work at the united nations and for the american people. the president appreciates the work she does every day and is looking forward to her continued work. congressman king is joining us now with his thoughts on all this. congressman king, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> do you believe that ambassador rice is part of a deliberate cover-up to mislead the public on the events surrounding the attack in banghazi? >> ambassador rice was deliberate misleading the american people or showed a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold that position anymore. the administration has misinformed the american people, misinformed the world, and
throughout the world and reportedly chanting obama, we are here to sacrifice for osama. this is 11 years after 9/11. a second attack occurred in libya. it had been even more spending. u.s. ambassador krista stevens, and sean smith and two other individuals were all murdered. stephen worked tirelessly to help the libyan people against qadhafi. now libyans are worried about the violence spreading elsewhere. we have greg live with more. reporter: we are getting more information about the tragic event as the day goes on. along with the libya ambassador, chris stephens and sean smith, two other americans killed. their identities are yet to be made public. believed to be a security issue, they were killed at or around the u.s. consulate in the eastern part of libya. it was a tumultuous event in libya. we have run into a lot in this region, according to the secretary, secretary clinton, he was committed to american values and interests. it is believed by islamists and others, it started off as a protest. it got a lot of traction in the internet throughout the region. then things got very violen
. this goes back to the beginning of the obama administration. in the first television interview president obamas days when he was sworn end with the foreign tv network, he promised he would provide middle east peace in our time. then president obama went on his first foreign policy trip to cairo. he spurned our longtime ally, the egyptian president mubarak, by inviting the muslim brotherhood, who at that time was outlawed in egypt, to attend his speech. he gave them a front-row ticket to his speech in cairo when mubarak's policy was to keep the destructive muslim brotherhood at arm's length. when you hear the muslim brotherhood's mission statement, you will understand why president mubarak would want to stop the violent muslim brotherhood. this is their macho. -- mott. -- motto. dying in the way of allah is our highest goal. it was even said that jerusalem will be our capital. i want to be perfectly clear this morning. even though the democrat party had a little trouble with this last week in charlotte, north carolina, the undivided city of jerusalem is not now, nor will it ever be anythi
-and-run is complete. at this very hour president obama's back in washington after fleeing new york city and the united nations general assembly. that means yet again he's free to resume his daily routine of fundraising, hobnobbing with celebrities and campaigning. as we reported last night during his brief visit to new york he found time to sit down for an interview with, yes, the ladies of "the view." today he cleared a few minutes on his schedule to deliver a quick speech at the u.n., however declined to meet with a single world leader while on the ground. that makes him the first president in more than two decades to avoid his counterparts on a u.n. trip. in addition, he uttered the word "terrorist" only once today. ironically the same amount of times that he tweeted about the ongoing nfl/referee labor dispute. it's statistics like these that show where the president's priorities lie. let's see, whoopi goldberg and joy behar, trumping benjamin netanyahu. if you needed more proof that this president is not interested in siding with our allies in israel, it came yesterday. this is the american delega
obama by hiding the truth of what happened in libya. >> sean: we are 39 days from the election, and "hannity" starts right here, right now. we're awaiting the first pictures from a muslim rally on american soil in dearborn, michigan. they're protesting the trailer that continues to be blamed for all the violence that has recently swept the middle east and north africa. they claim that the filmmaker has blood on his hands. they want to stress the need to curb portrayals of islam and the prophet. let me explain what this means. they want to limit your right to freedom of speech. we'll have a full report and images in just a little bit on the program, and as soon as that video becomes available we will bring it into to you on the fox news channel. first new evidence tonight that senior members of the obama administration in fact engaged in a widespread cover-up in the hours immediately following the nation of four americans in libya. beyond just their misleading words, it's now their behind-the-scenes actions that are raising very serious questions tonight about what this presiden
christian egyptians. that questions the words of mohammed. president obama before those events in egypt and libya, had made a point of saying that the islamic religion is not america's enemy. >> today, the war in iraq is over. in afghanistan we're training afghan security forces and forging a partnership with the afghan people. by the end of 2014, the longest war in history would be over. i always said our fight is with al qaeda and its affiliates, not with islam or any other religion. lou: the u.s. embassy in cairo apologized to anyone in the region offended by that movie and criticized anyone who would hurt the feelings of muslims. meanwhile the president rejected a request to meet with israel's prime minister at the united nations general assembly later this month. the white house cited scheduling conflicts. the president's schedule to be on the campaign trail when benjamin netanyahu will be in this country. and the so-called convention bounce in the polls for president obama seems to have already dissipated a brand new "abc washington post poll" of likely voters has the president le
company. >>> and staying on the campaign trail, a new poll shows president obama is leading mitt romney in four swing states with an average lead of 5 to 7 points in ohio, florida, and virginia. another poll in new hampshire shows the president also with a five point lead. the polls were taken in the days following the democratic national convention last week. >>> mitt romney's campaign is clarifying their definition of middle income. during an interview this morning. mr. romney described it as an income of $200 to $250,000 a year or less. that puts him in an agroament with president obama. he later clarified that remark saying he was referring to a household income, not an individual's. this week the census bureau reported the median income sits at just over $50,000. >>> developing tonight in chicago, the teacher strike could soon be over. negotiators say a tentative deal has been reached. they have a frame work that could end the work just in time for students to go back to class monday. delegates have to vote to end the strike. the teachers walkout kept public students out of the cla
. in a lot of these places, one organizing principle has been islam. >> rick: president obama on 60 minutes and numerous remarks on cairo attacks and bump in the road comments ignored by the media and steve had a follow-up on that comment. >> they never follow up with the president. fundamental flaw in the media's thinking as exhibit by steve croft. they say the organized principle is islam. it's not just islam but extremist wing and maybe turkey and deinz but we don't know where that is going where the fundamentalist islam has been nonviolent or promoted the equality of women. editorials in newspapers all missed this because they don't have a religious perspective. >> rick: the assassination of our ambassador, two former seals of a state department employee, where was the criticism over that comment? >> i think what the president was talking about was the broader context of the wave of change that in the wave of change they there is going to be bumps in the road. those people didn't interpret to mean that the death of four american officials is is a bump in the road. that being said there
by fists. apply those to politics and americans overwhelming believe president obama would deliver a knockout. according to a new poll by yahoo! news and "esquire" nearly three had in five americans say the president would win the a fistfight with governor mitt romney. the presidential debates are the closest we will probably come to an actual boxing match but this week blow for blow mitt romney took more hits. secured by top reasons for being too vague in his policies a list of conservatives cyst criticizing him for his libyan comments include -- peggy noonan, mark salter and 2008 mccain senior adviser steve schmidt. governor romney defended his decision to speak out on libya saying his position was no different than the president's. >> by the way, what i said was exactly the same thing the white house reached, which was that the statement was inappropriate and why they backed away from it as well. >> in the same interview with abc, romney tried to stake out a position on iran by planting a flag right next to president obama. >> president obama said exactly the same thing. he said
job to worry about those people. president obama released his comments on an appearance with "the tonight show with david letterman." >> one of the things i have learned as president is you represent the entire country. and when i meet with republicans as i'm traveling around the country, they are hard-working family people who care deeply about this country and my expectation is that if you want to be president, you have to work for everybody, not just for some. >> now romney is not apologizing for what he said, just how he said it. >> i recognize that those people who are not paying income tax are going to say, gosh, this provision of what mitt keeps talking about, lowering income taxes is not attractive to them. and those dependent on government and those who think government's job is to redistribute, i'm not going to get them. >> and the damage control continues this morning in addition to wusa today, mitt romney wrote an op-ed to try to clarify his comments more on dependency saying the dreamers and the entrepreneurs, not the government, built this economy and they can once a
, a lot of unrest and anger in the middle east this past week. the condemnation of obama has been swift and furious >> this leading from behind obama doctrine is up in flames >> terrorists believe they can attack our embassy with impunity, they believe the killr ambassador and there will be no response >> how much longer can we afford to spill our blood and treasure trying to, quote unquote, promote democracy in places that do not have any values for civilized society. >> jon: yes. democracy promotion is wrong. that's a somewhat isolationist position, ex-governor palin. does anyone see our role in the world differently? yes, you 2008 still governor palin >> i see our role in the world as one of being a force for good, to help these rising smaller democratic countries that are just, you know, they're putting themselves on the map right now >> jon: what a bold freedom agenda. it's a little bit naive. i mean, think of the blow-back >> egyptians elected a muslim brotheredhood member to head their country. let's not forget. this is very first place in the middle east that president obama pro
officials are speaking at the ceremony at new york's ground zero. president obama and the first lady attended a ceremony at the passenger today. the president laying a wreath before making comments. >> the true legacy of 9/11 will not be one of fear or hate or division, it will be a safer world, a stronger nation, and a people more united than ever before. god bless the memories of those we lost. jon: you won't have to watch any attack ads today, both the president and republican presidential nominee governor mitt romney pulled all negative ads in honor of 9/11. today governor romney issued this statement. eleven years ago evil descended upon our country taking thousands of lives in an unspeakable act against innocence. america will never forget those who perished. america will never stop caring for the loved ones they left behind and america will remain ever vigilant against those who would do us harm. eric shawn covered the attacks that morning, with us here at fox, he's live at ground zero now. eric, what is going on? >> jon, you know it has been eleven years but it seems as if no
